  1. 78
    Yields beguiling nectar.
  2. A slog to get through, but Jeanie Drynan's nuanced performance as the enduring matriarch makes it all worthwhile.
  3. 70
    This Australian tear-jerker finds more humor than you'd imagine possible in the story of a dying woman getting to know her adult children.
  4. The general talent and dedication of the ensemble mitigate the script's occasional lapses into sentimentality and noisy confrontation.
  5. Reviewed by: Chuck Wilson

    The characters...are so unlikable that one longs for a bit of cheap sentiment if only to make them palatable.
  6. Honest but also derivative and crude.
  7. Asks us to spend 101 minutes with people most of us wouldtake pains to avoid in real life.
